Business operators considering seeking variances from the Village sign code can get free guidance from the Community Design Commission before submitting a request for formal review. The commission will review and comment on drawings, sketches or photographic examples and materials as well as offer guidance and suggestions on meeting the code requirements and overcoming challenges that would require a variance. Reviews are given during the commission’s regular meeting at 7:15 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month. To arrange a conversation with the commission, call 708.358.5440 or email email@example.com.
